The berachah for chocolate-covered raisins


When eating chocolate-covered raisins, one really ought to recite separate blessings for the chocolate and the raisins. Ideally, the blessing on the raisins should be recited first, so one should recite a blessing on a separate raisin first.

One who does not have a separate raisin should recite the Shehakol berachah for the chocolate, keeping in mind that this does not exempt the raisin from its berachah, and bite in. Then one should recite a separate ha'Eitz berachah for the raisin, and bite in.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:31)

Have a great day,

  1. No no no!

    PEEL the first chocolate covered raisin so it's now mostly raisin.

    Or have the whole thing a dessert for a bread meal and you don't have to worry about it.

    You're welcome.
